Excellent ! Edge of your seat stuff !
18 June 2019 | by johnrowland18See all my reviews

A busted water pipe sends steam into the containment room of a nuclear reactor. That in turn sets of a series of events that makes the central computer observing the status of all the country's reactors,believe that the entire system may be at the mercy of saboteurs and so shuts down all access to the plant.

Brolin and Weisch are tasked with trying to discover whether this is an accident or sabotage from within.

Brilliant performances from the leads in William Devane as Frank Brolin and Michael Brandon as Carl Weisch. Ralph Wait as the 'By the book' Commander Henry Stone are the main characters but it has to be said an excellent support cast fulfill their roles well.
